Syria conflict: Heavy fighting grips Aleppo

Two groups of Syrian rebels have advanced in government-held western Aleppo by seizing an army barracks in one district. This has opened up lines of attack against several nearby government-held districts. The coalition, Conquest of Aleppo and a second rebel group, Ansar al-Sharia, initially made progress, but were pushed back by government forces and heavy airstrikes on Friday night.
